The last Alpine skiing event for women in PyeongChang was the Alpine Combined, formally known as Super Combined. It was renamed right after Sochi, but the format was still the same with one downhill run and one slalom run. Only one World Cup event was held in the ongoing season in Lenzerheide and it was won by Wendy Holdener, followed by Marta Bassino and Ana Bucik. Holdener was also the 2017 World Champion and the Alpine Combined Crystal Globe winner from 2015/16. The Alpine Combined World Cup winner in 2016/17, Ilka Štuhec, did not compete in PyeongChang due to an ACL injury to her left knee that she sustained in October 2017. Also not present in South Korea were Tina Maze, 2015 World Champion, and all three medalists from Sochi, as all four had retired. In addition to Holdener, Mikaela Shiffrin, Michelle Gisin, runner-up at the 2017 Worlds, and Petra Vlhová were considered medal contenders.

The first phase saw Lindsey Vonn in the lead after the downhill, but she was not considered a medal favorite as she no longer competed or trained for slalom. Following her was Ragnhild Mowinckel in second, but 0.74 seconds behind. From the medal contenders Gisin preformed best, finishing in third place and she was a full 1.21 seconds in front of sixth-placed Shiffrin. Holdener was in 10th, 1.97 seconds behind Gisin, and Vlhová was farther back in 13th. From only 28 starters 22 qualified for the second run and, as in the technical events, they started in reverse order which meant that Vlhová, starting 10th, was the first of the favorites to compete. She had a good run, which would be the second fastest run time, but at the end finished outside the medals in fifth. The fastest run time was set by Holdener and she took the lead until Shiffrin bettered her overall time. With three skiers to go Gisin took advantage of her comfortable lead and easily topped the results. Mowinckel was not able to threaten the top three and placed fourth, while Vonn did not finish the slalom run.

Michelle Gisin became the first ever female Olympic champion in Alpine Combined for Switzerland and followed her sister Dominique, who won gold in downhill four years earlier, to win a second gold medal for the Gisin family. Rossignol, with Gisin, won their second gold at this Games, Shiffrin used Atomic, and Holdener skied Head.
